DT Greg Gilmore Profile
6-foot-4, 285-pound junior defensive tackle Greg Gilmore was in Tigertown for the January Junior
"It went great," he told CUTigers recently. "It's definitely a
little town surrounded by a big school. Ten miles down the road you saw
Tiger paws. I love the feel. The locker rooms are nice. The coaches are
What stood out?
"I think that what stood out from Clemson and other schools was the
quantity of stuff they have," he said. "Everybody has a running pool, but
not everybody has two or three of them. All of their stuff is state of the
art, of course. It's pretty much the same with every other school. But
Gilmore spent time with several members of the Clemson coaching staff,
including his recruiter of note, defensive tackles coach Dan Brooks
and defensive coordinator Brent Venables.
"They just want to keep this thing going, keep the pressure on the ACC,
pretty much prove to everybody that the ACC is as good as the SEC. That's
what they're trying to prove," Gilmore said. "They've got the new
defensive coordinator. I spent some time with him. He's a great person. He
had a good defense at Oklahoma."
He hit the North Carolina junior day on Wednesday and will head to
Virginia Tech for next Saturday's event.
Does Gilmore have a list of favorites?
"I kind of do, but I kind of don't. I just pretty much just want to go to
these junior days. I'll have a top five by the time the season starts,"
After taking all five of his official visits, a decision could be
announced at the U.S. Army game.
Gilmore had 79 tackles and two sacks, forced four fumbles and blocking a
field goal. He also had three catches for 43 yards.
Eighteen schools have offered, including Clemson, Florida, LSU, North
Carolina, NC State, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, California and
Virginia Tech. Oklahoma and Ohio State are also in contact.
Great trip for four-star DT
